Today’s big postponement: Bloodstock 2020 – details on what to do with your tickets and GREAT news for 2021!

Looks like their announcement went up early, but as the organisers themselves are now chatting about it online I don’t think I’m treading on toes to get this out there! It’s expected, a bit sad… but as ever with Bloodstock they’re got a hefty dollop of good news to make up for it!

Another big name has had to admit defeat in the face of a persistent microorganism, as Bloodstock puts off its 20th birthday back until 2021. Here’s hoping they get the majority of the lineup back (as most festivals seem to be aiming for) as it had a few of my favourites on there! The full announcement is up if you want all the details, but essentially they’re in line with all other major festivals – an option to roll your ticket over to next year, prices frozen and so forth. Pretty much what you’d expect from the nice folk at Bloodstock.

The biggest thing to note is that 2021’s event will run from Wednesday 11th until Sunday 15th of August next year – a bonus day! And Judas Priest will still be headlining on the Sunday. Don’t believe me? Believe Rob Halford!

Along with the announcement, a full FAQ is on their website, and repeated below for your convenience.
